After a safety and weather overview, guided fishing trips depart from Romar Harbor Marina aboard the company’s 24-foot vessel, which is helmed by a U.S. Coast Guard–certified captain. After 10 minutes, groups arrive at calm fishing waters, where they cast for three hours, aided by their guide’s coaching. As they fish, they can nosh on any drinks and snacks they brought with them. Upon returning to the marina, the staff cleans the catch and stores filets in ziplock bags; passengers should have coolers stowed in their cars for transporting their fresh fish home.
Alabama Girl Fishing
Alabama Girl Fishing takes its name from its 24-foot vessel, the Alabama Girl, which Coast Guard–licensed captain Rick Murdock uses to lead guided fishing trips. Murdock has maintained a perfect safety record for the past 35 years, and he skillfully ferries fishermen to spots ranging from the mouth of Mobile Bay to the Bon Secour, Magnolia, and aptly named Fish Rivers. Passengers cast for species such as speckled trout, redfish, and flounder, baiting their lines with a supply of live shrimp and croakers or artificial bait, which prove even more enticing to fish than the promise of a new home furnished with a plastic castle. After trips, which run year-round, the staff cleans the catch and packages the fresh filets in ziplock bags for easy transportation.
